Okay enough talking now… to the pictures!
My kitchen before my itty, bitty, updates.
Nothing wrong with it. Really.
But, tweaking is always good.

Yes, some of the darkness is in my poor picture taking skills in my early blogging days.
But still. Here’s after some tweaking this week (5 months later)…


There you have it.
My kitchen week is done.
And I think there is a great difference!

P.S. My kitchen looks pretty clean.
Ha! Don’t look behind the island. In the microwave. Tucked into the dishwasher.
And those floors…
Yep, it’s all pretend folks. But she sure looks pretty! Now to keep her like that. Ugh.

Til Next time!

    I love the updates – so much happier/lighter now!

    LOL! You should have seen my dining room when I was taking pictures of my kitchen the other day too.

    I covet that island/breakfast bar! That’s exactly what I’m hoping to somehow MacGuyver into my kitchen…someday. Your kitchen is gorgeous – love the two tone cabinets, the counters, and the floor. Your tweaking is amazing!

    well done! You inspired me to do mine…. well I got as far as the door anyway before I ran away from the chaos that is my kitchen!

    I love the packed full of personality your kitchen shows. Really, lots of cute fun touches! What a wonderful lay out too. Have a great weekend Martha!

    I love how you’ve just teased us all the way along…it looks great! This is the part where I barricade the kitchen off from ever being used, just to keep it all nice and tidy and tell the husband he’s treating the family to three squares a day 7 days a week over at the local diner ;)

    While lighting and photog know-how play a huge role in great before and after posts, there is no denying that all your little updates make the biggest impact here! I really love all the colorful vignettes. Great job Janel!
